For all Gen III Pokémon ROM hackers!

Make A Good Map Contest
Dec 15 to Jan 15 - anyone able to enter!

Hi everyone! It's been a rough ride, hasn't it? 2020 wasn't so great. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to make it better! So, here is what we present!


MAGM is a Generation III Pokémon ROM hacking contest created by Anthroyd. Your goal is to create a ROM hack that consists of a single map. You may add whatever you wish to your map, including a small story line, a treasure hunt, a battle tournament, a slow walk through a prehistoric village of iron golems, or anything else that you can think of. This year we collaborated with Anthroyd to host the event on PC too! Hopefully word will get out and submissions will pile to the floor! This one is called "MAGM 3" since the previous two were hosted on the Discord server only.

Check out the thread linked above for the details. And if you're entering, good luck!

I have a doubt, is it strict to use only the default tiles and not custom one ?
Custom tile insertion feels so difficult

There are no rules about tilesets, its completely up to you. You can stick with vanilla if you want. Or try some custom pr public tilesets. Whatever works best.
I've come to realize that years of self-taught experience amounted to significantly less than I initially thought, but with the support of some great tutorials, friends, and fellow community members, I've become half decent by now. I'm no expert, I still have a long way to go, and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.

I've shelved some projects and reduced the scope of others now that I have a more grounded view of what I can reasonably accomplish. One project I certainly won't give up on is improving gen 3's multiplayer.

Something I did accomplish was making a full short game in 30 days.

Just take a look at the above link; you do not need to do that.

But I don't know how to make a patch file...
There are plenty of tutorials out there! You can try here: https://www.zeldix.net/t351-how-to-make-and-apply-an-ups-patch

So, all I have to do is make an entire Pokemon adventure experience jammed into one room? ex: Pallet Town? (but edited greatly, of course)
Nocturnal...? W-What does that mean?😕
